Staying Healthy in Your Home
Did you know most people spend nearly 90% of their time indoors? This makes having and maintaining a Healthy Home important for your health and the health of those you love.
What is a healthy home?
A Healthy Home follows these seven principles: keep it maintained, pest free, clean, dry, safe, well-ventilated, and contaminant free. If these principles are applied, you can have a healthy home for many years to come whether you live in a newly constructed home or one built over 100 years ago.
